Incarvillea delavayi

Pride of China

Exotic trumpet-shaped flowers grace this group of perennials from Asia. There are 14 species of which one, Incarvillea delavayi, is commonly available. Others are Incarvillea mairei grandiflora with larger pink flowers and Incarvillea arguta with smaller pink flowers. The flowers are usually pink, but a rare white version is sometimes available. Easy to grow from seed. Available as bareroot plants in late winter or in containers in spring. Watch for root rot in waterlogged winter soil. Need some shade in hot, humid areas. If you are not saving seed, remove the flower stalks when spent. Allow foliage to die back naturally. Lift and store roots in soil in cold climates.
